Researchers at the University of Minnesota’s Southern Research and Outreach Center in Waseca, took a look at a number of heifer-feeding regimens. They evaluated diets based on limit- or full-fed concentrate mixtures, with or without access to long hay during part of the feeding period from two to six months of age. They concluded that all diets studied resulted in acceptable average daily gains, hip heights and bodyweights.
